It is helpful to have an education in today's society especially if you want to be successful. High school and college work hand and in helping students obtain an education.

First, I prefer college because I can set my own schedule. So, when I schedule my college courses, I have more available time and high school was set. Now, that I am enrolled in college, I can go in the evening time. In contrast to high school, I could only go in the morning. I college I have to study more, but in high school, I barely studied.

Next, in college can be expensive, but I did not have to pay for my classes and books when in high school. Now, in college I have to pay for all my classes and books. Transportation was free in high school, because I rode the bus. Yet, in college I have to drive my car and pay for gas and maintenance of my vehicle.

Finally, the difference between high school and college is campus size. In high school I could walk to all my classes because they were closer together. As for for college, my classes are spread throughout the campus, so I have to drive to my classes. The high school I went to did not have a lot of parking and the spots were designated for teachers and seniors. On the other hand, there are numerous places to park on the college campus.

I prefer college over high school because I made the decision to attend. In college, I have more learning resources, like the lab and tutors, which I can utilize on campus. The time and cost of college is an investment in my future. This investing is going to help me with the goals I have set for myself. Accomplishing these goals would not be achieved without my decision to return to college.
